Thursday, March 26th 2020, 11:00 am - Some of Ontariio's typically-busy roadways were noticeably empty Thursday morning.
Ontario has declared a state of emergency to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and has ordered all non-essential businesses to be closed.
Schools, daycares, parks, and hiking trails are closed as well.
That has had a major impact on traffic across the province, even during rush hour.
On Thursday, we checked out highway traffic cameras between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. -- a time when many people are usually heading to work and school.
One of the most notably-empty stretches of road is on the 401, which is one of North America's busiest highways.
On a typical, pre-coronavirus day, between 420,000 and 500,000 cars use this route.
